Slice O' Pie Pizza in Jamaica Plain Shuts Abruptly

A sign in the window indicates the pizza parlor will reopen soon.

Hyde Square pizza joint closed abruptly this week.

Signs in the windows indicate the 378 Centre St. is closed for renovations and will reopen soon.

Slice O' Pie, which opened in February 2011, recently ran into trouble with the city over its license. The took up the matter in its Tuesday meeting, voting unanimously to affirm the restaurant's license. It isn't clear if the problem was actually on the city end. Over the past year, many JP restaurants that were open for months or years were surprised to find out that parts of the city bureacracy considered them as not having the proper licenses.

A source told JP Patch that employees showed up for work Thursday to find the store shuttered and equipment removed. The telephone number for the restaurant wasn't working as of Sunday morning.

JP Patch hasn't been able to reach owner Eric Ciampa. We'll update this story when we learn more.

Slice O' Pie is in the former space of La Pupusa Guanaca, a popular Salvadoran restaurant that closed after the owner ran into tax problems and had numerous health violations from the city.
